Apache Geronimo Board Report for 1Q 2007

The Apache Geronimo Project has been mostly focusing on achieving  
Java EE 5 functionality for its 2.0 release. We have been refining  
our release procedures and as a result have been fairly consistent at  
releasing monthly Milestones to make our work in progress available  
to users.

Version 1.2 is nearing its readiness to release but has been delayed  
due to external dependencies that have not been fulfilled.

Collaboration with several other projects in Apache is going on which  
includes Axis 2, OpenJPA, OpenEJB, CXF and Yoko.

     * Geronimo
       2.0-M2 and 2.0-M3 were released in January and February  
       Continuing the "Drive to 5" and hope to have a developer  
release by May.
     * Geronimo Javamail
       New release of the javamail jars were released. The new  
versions are geronimo-javamail_1.3.1_mail-1.1, geronimo- 
javamail_1.3.1_provider-1.1, and geronimo-javamail_1.3.1_spec-1.3.


Migrated the authoring of the website to Confluence. GMOxSITE space  
can be updated by Geronimo committers only and uses autoexport plugin  
to create the HTML version that is served from minotaur.
Some content on the website such as plugin repo lists, schemas,  
images are still maintained via the original svn repo.

Policy Changes

     * TCK Access
       The PMC approved a policy allowing read access to our TCK  
framework for any Apache committer that has signed the NDA for access  
to the Sun TCK. There is a 72-hour waiting period for non-Geronimo  
committers so the PMC membership can comment. Non-committers are  
granted read-only access (and can earn karma) while Geronimo  
committers are granted Read / Write access.


     * DayTrader
       Currently working on development to provide an EJB 3.0 version  
of this benchmark
     * DevTools
     * XBean


New Committers:
